I was playing a concert about 10 years ago with the National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain conducted by Harry Mortimer, and the soloist was (the legendary) Maurice Murphy on trumpet. He seemed to have a bad time at one point in a solo called "Zelda", and when we asked what happened after, he said he'd got too much saliva with no break to swallow it! It obviously happens to the best players in the world as well as the rest of us!
I can't see an apparent answer to the problem though. Sorry !
